This is the third print I've bought--they're all beautiful and well-loved by their recipients. The framed print arrived quickly!

Super fast shipping -- and clearly sent with great care! I've wanted one of the artist's prints for the longest time and this totally lived up to my expectations with a beautiful color scheme.

About

Abstract Map Prints of Boston & Beyond

Carland Cartography is a luxury retailer for fine art prints of abstracted street maps, showing individual neighborhoods as well as broad city views of various places in the world.

Carland Cartography creates their work in layers. Each piece consists of several layers which are hand crafted in their studio. These layers are then digitally combined to create a final piece of artwork. All of their prints are made in the USA using professional printers who specialize in fine art and photographic imaging.

Operated by artist/designer duo, Jennifer Carland and Remo Wakeford, Carland Cartography has grown to accommodate the request from customers to provide maps of Boston and beyond. In 2015, Carland Cartography moved into the current studio, which is located Northwest of Boston in a historic mill building that has been renovated into a working and retail space for over 300 artists.

Additional policies and FAQs
Q: What Is "Cartography"?

A: Cartography is the study and practice of making maps. We like maps because they are tangible representations of specific locations. Carland Cartography creates abstract drawings of street maps. We change the focus of a map from a tool to a story. We aren’t just selling art prints- we are providing personalized biographies to each one of our customers. We are invoking nostalgia, recalling a sense of belonging and self-identity. The finished pieces of artwork can serve as reminders of the locations that make your life story special and different from anyone else.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Q: What Sizes Are Available?

A: We sell a limited selection of three sizes (8x10", 11x14" and 16x20") on our Etsy shop. Some of our work is available larger- up to 58x73” but unfortunately, not everything can be enlarged bigger than 24x30” without losing image integrity.Please visit www.carlandcartography.com for full offering.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Do you sell “original” work?

A: Unlike traditional artistic methods of creating work on a single surface, our work is created by combining separate hand-drawn sketches. The sketches are made using a variety of artistic mediums and we plan all of the sketches to be used together as a unit to create the intended result. So, there are no “originals” in the conventional sense. Each sketch is essential to the final product, but is NOT intended to stand alone as finished work and is not sold.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What Product Lines Are Available?

A: We Offer Several Different Product Lines, with Over 50 Abstract Maps to Choose From. We currently have (4) product lines and a selection of other work.

Boston Neighborhood Series
Commemorative Collection
Twisted City Series (NYC)
Cycling Series


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Q: How can I be included in special offers and promotions?

A: We sometimes offer special offers and promotions for our subscribers. In order to get access to these offers, please sign up to our mailing list so you can save money on your next order. Sign up at www.carlandcartography.com


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: I like this, but can I get it in a different color?

A: Each piece is drawn by hand using various artistic media. Because of our process, colors cannot be easily changed. If you want a particular piece in a particular color, we have to start the process from the beginning and it is considered a custom order.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: How long does each piece take to make?

A: Each piece takes approx.10 weeks to make. Its a slow process, but we think the results are worth the time invested.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: I live in a small apartment with NO wallspace! Do you sell other merchandise?

A: Shop our RedBubble site for merchandise options for your home or office. We offer a wide range of merchandise- clothing, phone cases, pillows, mugs, greeting cards, zippered pouches and more! These make great options for holiday baskets, wedding guest favors, graduation gifts and other special occasions. They also make GREAT housewarming gifts!

A: Yes! We are happy to provide wholesale options to retailers nationwide. A minimum order of $450 is required for all new wholesale orders. Contact us to gain access to our wholesale catalog- A Valid EIN is required.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: I love your work but I don’t see my neighborhood. Can I have a custom order made?

A: Yes! We can do a personalized map of anywhere on the globe, just keep in mind some places have more “visual appeal” than others. Check out our Custom Orders page for detailed information.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Are all your prints archival quality?

A: Most of our work is archival quality. However our 8.5x11" paper prints, which are sold exclusively at artist markets and through our Etsy site, are not archival.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Q: Can I pick up my purchase rather than having it shipped?

A: Unfortunately no customer pick-ups are available at this time.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Do you have a storefront I can visit?

A: We don't have a retail store, but our studio is usually open every first Saturday from 12-5pm. If there is something you would like to discuss with us in-person, that is the best chance of doing so. Please check the Western Avenue Studios website for more information.
